I kept the food really simple, partly because it was a 2pm party and also because my husband kept going on about the good old days of party pies, sausage rolls and fairy bread. I didn’t go quite that old school, but still managed to keep it pretty simple. My mum and I made everything ourselves, Captain America fairy bread, jelly cups (thats Jello for all you non Australians!), iced spiderman cookies, Thor’s hammers made from rice krispie treats, buttered popcorn, lollies, cupcakes, fresh fruit and the birthday cake.
Over on the drinks table I served bottled water with superhero labels, apple cordial and soft drinks & sparkling water for the adults. I also included the party bags over on the drink table, which I decorated with these fun superhero comic cutouts. I found black and white spotted cups that I like and added the stickers myself (also from here).
Now the birthday cake definitely isn’t the most elegant or artistic cake, not by any stretch of the imagination. But it’s homemade and that’s something that’s important to me. My mum always made my birthday cakes, and I love to do the same for my boys. It’s three layers of vanilla sponge, filled and iced with buttercream. Decorated with candles, superhero toppers and black fondant circles.
